That included a 14-24 record against SEC competition.

Reports indicate Tennessee head football coach Butch Jones has been fired from the University of Tennessee.

Dooley, Johnny Majors, Doug Dickey and Bowden Wyatt are the only Tennessee coaches to endure one-win conference campaigns.

Defensive line coach Brady Hoke, the former University of MI head coach, will serve as UT's interim head coach for the last two games.

Jones had three years remaining on his contract, which owed him $4.1 million annually through the 2020 season. The Volunteers showed some fight early on in the game, but looked completely lackluster in the second half Saturday night, getting outscored 26-0 in the second half. His overall head coaching record is 148-78 and was 11-2 in his first season at MI.

Jones, 49, was 34-27 in five seasons at Tennessee.

The Salvation Army says almost 3,000 children will be helped this year in the annual Salvation Army Angel Tree program. Each year legions of bell-ringers stand outside stores and other locations to solicit donations for the organization.


The storied program was guided by two head coaches for 32 years - John Majors and Phillip Fulmer. This search will be my sole focus, and I will be in regular contact with Chancellor (Beverly) Davenport.

Tennessee becomes the third SEC coaching vacancy.

This comes one day after the Vols were blown out 50-17 at Missouri and the Vols' fifth loss in their last six games.

He also ended the 11-game losing streak to Florida and a 19-game skid against ranked opponents.

The Tigers amassed a whopping 659 yards of total offense, including a massive 433 yards on the ground.

Tennessee has never had a winless SEC record in 121 years playing football, but must beat LSU and Vanderbilt to prevent that from happening.
